Hard Numbers: Russia's real death toll, jobless American women, Afghan attacks, Seoul tracing challenge
2.7: For the first time during a recession, US female unemployment (at 16.2 percent) is higher than men's – by 2.7 points. While past recessions have landed hardest on male-dominated industries like manufacturing and construction, this one is crippling retail, hotels, and restaurants, which have high female employment rates.
2,000: South Korean contact tracers are now trying to track down as many as 2,000 people who may have visited several Seoul nightclubs that were the site of a recent coronavirus outbreak. So far, 102 infections have been confirmed.
19: At least 19 civilians were killed in separate attacks on a Kabul maternity ward (yes, you read that right) and a funeral in eastern Afghanistan on Tuesday. Violence has increased in the country despite a tentative peace deal between the US and Taliban forces.
